Jackson v. Edgewood Management Corp.

In Brief

TELG client Donna Jackson won $650,000 in a case that extended “cat’s paw” liability to workplace retaliation cases filed under Maryland state law.

What Happened in Court

Maryland’s highest court upheld a jury’s award of $650,000 to TELG client Donna Jackson, who had faced retaliation after passing along a gender discrimination complaint aimed at her supervisor. The outcome solidified Maryland’s adoption of the “cat’s paw” concept of liability, under which an employer may be held liable for retaliation against an employee even if the actual decision-maker was unaware of a retaliatory motive. The case was Maryland’s first major application of Staub v. Proctor Hospital, the landmark 2011 “cat’s paw” decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.
